Following the recent debacle in the middle east, the US has decided it will send up to 300 military advisers to help the Iraqi government in its fight against Islamist militants.
Speaking at the White House, US President Barack Obama said he was prepared to take “targeted” military action but stressed that US troops would not return to combat in Iraq.
According to Sky News, the US contingent being sent to Iraq will be made up of special forces and will staff joint operations centres for intelligence sharing and planning, officials said.
He also said that he would be sending Secretary of State John Kerry to the Middle East and Europe at the weekend for talks with US allies and partners on ways to stabilise the region.
